Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I found this to be quite bland. Also, it was a very small amount of sauce. Maybe 2-3 servings, not 5.

Cheesy Leek Strata

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I of course didn't read the part where I was supposed to let the strata refrigerate (2 hours to overnight) until I was in the middle of making it, and the family was waiting for dinner! I pressed the strata down for a few minutes, but I skipped the refrigeration. I still thought it was delicious!

Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
These taste great. Mine came out pretty flat, though, not like in the picture. I cooked for only 7 minutes, as other reviewers suggested, and they were already getting brown on the edges.

Italian Sausage and Zucchini

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
This was excellent. Granted, I made quite a few changes from the recipe. My modifications: added oregano, basil, and sage; used brocolli and mushrooms instead of zucchini; added garlic; used 2 cans diced tomatoes. I served over rice.

Rosy's Palak Paneer

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
I found this needed about twice as much spinach and half as much paneer, but it was otherwise delicious!

Greek-Style Rib Eye Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I found this recipe hard to follow. I wasn't sure how high to have the skillet, but even at a pretty low temperature, the outsides almost burned. Meanwhile, the insides didn't get cooked.

Mushroom Lentil Barley Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Pretty good hearty winter stew. My only complaint is that it was a little bland. Maybe adding some wine or lemon or something would spice it up. I served it topped with parmesan, which helped.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
Best roasted potatoes I've tasted! The spice ratios were just perfect, which surprised me since they were so easy – 1 Tbsp each.

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
I thought this was pretty good. My husband really liked it. I think I might have used too much onion. Definitely don't go overboard on the onions, since they aren't sauteed in this recipe and can be strong. I used 2% milk instead of soy.

Asian Fire Meat

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
I found this recipe to be very good, but too salty. Next time I'd reduce the soy sauce a lot. I didn't have leeks or carrots, and I used regular yellow onions.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Like many of the reviewers, I only used half the butter, and I used half-and-half instead of heavy cream. And it was still really rich! I used russet potatoes, because it was what I had on hand. I think it really would've made a big difference to use yukon golds. Russets are flaky, while golds are creamy, which would go much better with the theme of the soup.
